Five Unexpected Reasons Why People Want to Buy From You

In case you would like to run a successful eCommerce business, you might want to learn more about your potential customers and their preferences. People will never buy from your company: it is always personal. If you would like to provide what they are looking for, it is time to figure out what makes them tick and open their wallet, typing their credit card details in the small boxes. Read five unusual reasons why customers might decide to buy from you and not somebody else.

1.   They Feel Appreciated

You need to let your potential customers know that you value their business, and appreciate their visit to your site. Automate your communication, and send out updates. Make sure that you personalize every email and newsletter, and send out offers that are relevant to them. If you know that your customer has a cat, don’t send out dog products if you own an online pet shop. Make your customers feel valued, appreciated, and personally looked after, even if you never meet them.

2.   They Feel Like You are Doing them a Favor

Some customers are so happy to find the exact product they have been hunting for months that no price is too high. If you have a rare or unique product that is not available elsewhere, you can get them to buy almost immediately. Read an additional 20 tips to improve conversion rate on your website and get people to visit your online store with the clear intention of buying.

3.   You Offer Added Value

Instead of trying to enter the price competition, you should always think about ways of offering more value than other companies. Add free shipping, or even a handy guide to every order. It will not cost you much, but you can get more people to buy from you and not other companies. Give them something that they appreciate and believe in, such as reorder reminders, or an eBook to go with their purchase. If you sell small electronic items, you can throw in free batteries, too.

4.   You Have Testimonials

When people shop online, they often check the reputation of the company and visit the testimonial page. Make sure that you ask for feedback from all your customers, as word-of-mouth advertising is powerful. You will be more trusted if you have a good feedback score and real people send you comments about your products.

5.   They Can Relate to You on a Personal Level

People who want to be like you, or feel like you have a lot in common with them will be more likely to buy your products. Don’t forget about the importance of personal branding when setting up your online store. Get people to comment on your videos, connect with them on social media, and ask them to participate in questionnaires. This way, they will feel like they already know you, and can trust your brand.

Whenever you are searching for ways of impressing your potential customers, try to find out what makes them buy from you and not other online store owners.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
